Before becoming co-founders of Trampoline House, artists Morten Golland Tone Olaf Nielsen were living in Los Angeles. Inspired by west coast grassroot organisations, which were mobilising to pursue justice for their communities, the couple set out to do just that: promote a sense of community and belonging, except in their own  home country of Denmark – and during challenging times.
Their first objective was to organise a workshop with asylum seekers in 2009, where they asked them for their expert opinion on what it was actually like to live in an asylum centre.
